Balloons could be grounded at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

(WAOW) -- High winds could ground some of the fan favorites at this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Some reports say the balloons might not be able to go up.

Forecasters are expecting a big storm to move through today, packing wind gusts up to 37 mph.

Parade officials worry those winds could carry over into Thanksgiving morning.

Parade rules ban balloons from flying if wind gusts are over 34 mph.

Parade officials say they'll decide whether the balloons will fly an hour before the parade starts.
